The Dikeou Collection says
The Dikeou Collection is pleased to announce its participation in 2015's Month of Photography with our second photography-inspired family workshop. This workshop will be held at the Dikeou Collection, 1615 California St, Suite 515, and will take place on Saturday, April 4, from 12:00 to 4:00pm. The workshop is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be provided.

The workshop will focus on Dutch photographer Sebastiaan Bremer's unique style of photo alteration, and materials will be provided for participants to paint, draw, and etch upon a variety of vintage photographs to create their own Bremer-inspired artwork. In his series titled
"Schöner Götterfunken," Bremer selected photographs from his family's 1972 vacation in the Alps. The dramatic snowy peaks and vast fields of wildflowers provide the backdrop for activities like hiking, skiing, or lazily laying the grass, but they are given a dose of surreality with Bremer's addition of colorful floating orbs that add an extra sense of atmospheric depth. He does this by painting directly on the photographs, enlarging them, and then re-photographing them. This creates a fantastic dynamic between surface and image, between painting and photography.

The Dikeou Collection's Family Saturday Workshops are a great way for people of all ages to learn more about contemporary art and experiment with new creative processes. Brief tours of the collection will be given at 12:15 and 2:00, and will include a tutorial and presentation of the artwork highlighted that month.
